What do we do in the “Off Season”?

While it’s possible to dive year ’round, the fact is the custom wetsuit business slows down in January and February, so that gives Chris time to work on other projects.  Our industrial machines are uniquely qualified for sewing both neoprene and fur pelts, so we make custom fur items from pelts supplied by some of our customers.  Here are a few examples, all made from Axis deer hides.

 

Axis were imported from India, and are not a native species, so Texas Parks and Wildlife regulations allow them to be hunted year round… and Axis venison is delicious!  So for hunters lucky enough to get one, we encourage them to not waste any part of the animal.  The hides are beautiful, with a dark stripe down the center spine and white fawn-like spots, even on mature deer.
